Sweet and spicy tofu tacos - what more could you ask for!

This is one of my all time favourite recipes, one that I make almost every week. If you are someone who has never tried tofu, this is a great recipe to start with as it is super simple!

These are completely customizable tofu tacos - this recipe just includes the tofu recipe, what toppings you choose to make your tacos are up to you!

For my toppings I decided to use:

  • shredded carrot
  • shredded red cabbage
  • radish
  • green onion
  • cilantro
  • sriracha mayo

This tofu recipe can also be used in rice bowls or lettuce cups! This is a good staple recipe to have on hand whenever you are wanting to have some tofu for dinner!
